On Saturday, October 14, 2017 @ 9:00AM – Noon (Arrival @ 8:30am)

Presented by Andrew McDonald, D. Sc.





Logistics has been studied and used for over two millennia. From Hannibal moving war elephants in the second Punic war to the modern Inventory control systems that are used throughout e-commerce and everyday grocery shopping. Without knowing all of the logistics terminology, we have used logistics systems in every facet of our lives. We will learn how Systems Engineering and Logistics come hand in hand to help our lives to be easier and more efficient. We will discuss Logistics in all sections of the Systems Engineering Life cycle using interesting case studies and examples. Attendees will leave with an foundational understanding of logistics in the SE lifecycle and examples of application.
